A Short Film About Love.
SO a few weeks ago i saw a movie by my favorite director Krzysztof Kieślowski, it was Called ” A short Film About Love” and i have to say, it’s one of the most brilliant and interesting movies i’ve seen in i can’t remember how long. It’s definitely unlike any Love story you have every seen… haha Though it was really different, for some reason, i could really relate to it. Not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing? haha Not sure why i’m posting about it. But i was sitting and drawing and listening to music today, and a sort of cheesy sappy love song came on, and it made me start thinking about how there are stereo typical imagery when the word “Love” is mentioned generally. For example, i think of a big heart floating in the air, haha but when each of us thinks of love in terms that apply to us, we picture a whole other set of images, and these aren’t generic at all, they’re specific to us and our dreams and experiences… i don’t know, i was thinking about that yesterday and cracking up because when i thought about it, the most random sequence of images popped in my head. So i was thinking as a little homework assignment to you all, since I’m definitely a person that likes telling stories through images, i thought it would be interesting to have yawl post two images that remind you of love. Not generic love, but your personal version of it… i don’t know, you don’t have to if you don’t want to.. wow this is a quiet the rambling post… i should probably go to bed now. hahaha oh p.s. the picture is a 5ft painting i did 3-4 years ago.
It’s really nice to hear You like this movie. Krzysztof Kieślowski is in my country some kind of legend now. It’s wonderful that people around the world are still watching his movies!November 21, 2008 at 12:58 pm
Best regards! :)
“a short film about love” is absolutely brilliant, i agree.
there will never be another
kieslowski and i cherish
all of his films. if you

‘decalogue’, i highly recommend
it. i saw it in 3 parts at LACMA
years ago and it changed my life.
